One Day On Earth: Vimeo (including my interview about falling in love with Mr. Curry)


Pixley One Day (Morning) from Taymar Pixley on Vimeo.


When Taymar came down for the baby shower, she was filming her video for One Day On Earth. Taymar has been on my blog before, the story of our friendship here. She's an amazing woman, talented, gypsy like, independent, alternative, creative, loving and truly a free spirit, in a time of so few. The video includes 2 short interviews with my Dakota and Lola, both of which I'm so proud of I could just pop. ( hee hee ) It's fascinating to me to see the difference in Dakota from the time this was taken and the short distance to now. The program he is in is fantastic. And in the middle somewhere, is an interview with me about how I fell in love with Mr. Curry, and what I think love is. Also included is T's boyfriend, Max, her son ( Lola's bestie ) Caspian, and one of Dakota's closest friends - since 5th grade- Evan Poe- and in the end, although he avoided an actual interview, you can catch a glimpse of Ian Oliver. My family!
The room that the piece opens in is our master bedroom, when the furniture had been all pulled out and it was being used as a storage dump: before carpet cleaning, wall painting and new bed. You can see our whole house in massive move-everything-around-and paint-there-is-a-baby-coming! transition, so sigh... kind of embarrassing!
Love, Maggie May

After reading about this entire cast of characters for the last year or so, and becoming so attached to them, the video is a real treat. Enjoyed it very much, Maggie May. Hopefully, the next 'episode' will feature Ever.

That was so fantastic :) So good to actually see you guys moving and talking and all that!! And I completely agree with you on the love stuff. You put it better than I think I ever could.

Ms. Moon said...

I feel a deep connection with all of you. So...I love you.
Beautiful.

Oh my gosh, how do I get as cool as you all? That whole video was love and coolness. You sure potray your family with your words amazingly accurately. I was blown away by this. What a treat. And that BOY/man! He breaks my heart with his sweetness and presence. Wow. And Lola, she knocked my socks off and you and Mr C, you guys are all so REAL and filled with sweetness and brilliance and so much raw love. I can barely stand it. Your friends are lovely, what fantastic questions and videoing. Caspian is the coolest name. You guys all ROCK.
You said "tethered." You're such a genius Maggie. You are.
Can you tell this video gave me the warm fuzzies?

Wow, what a trip! Heh heh heh. Thanks!

See Kate run. said...

Captivating. I feel like I finally got to meet your family!

Maggie, Thank you so much for sharing this. I had smiles, smiles, smiles, all through watching it. Your children are beautiful and as you say, emotionally intelligent, both Dakota and Lola, and impressive in their ability to articulate their feelings and freely show them. Watching Lola with her little friend was a joy, and hearing her talk about love. I'm so excited for all of you, and Baby Ever, making her appearance, oh, so soon. Love to all of you.

Elizabeth said...

I really enjoyed watching that -- and loved hearing your sweet voice throughout. I have to say that you and Dakota look like sister and brother. I mean, I know you were young when you had him, but you're near nine months pregnant and look like a baby yourself! Wonderful --

Elisabeth said...

This is riveting viewing and all the time, Maggie, I tried to flesh out the writer I read in you.

I did not notice the state of the background despite your fears. All the people, the people in this clip, including the more silent ones are mesmerising. Thanks for sharing it.

Wow Maggie you are so beautiful! I really hope that I can be the kind of mother that you are. Lola's comment 'a good feeling in your heart,' what a beautiful kid. And it was amazing to see Dakota in 'real life' as you have written about him a lot lately. It's so obvious that he is a really clued-up person, and will come out of the craziness of adolescence one heck of a human being. Awesome post, thank you for sharing it.

Love is a good feeling in your heart. xxx

Petit fleur said...

What a sweet video! And those children are so wise and beautiful, just like the mammas!

Love you Maggie. It was great to see and hear you all... maybe you could do more video posting in the future. I'd love to hear you read some of your poetry and see and hear more family at home kinds of stuff too. Just an idea.

Your children are so connected and awesome. You have much to be proud of, Maggie. Thanks for sharing this--it looks like a cool project.

It's things like this that make the internet so great.

Thank-you!

Maggie May, I loved watching this! It is so nice to be able to put faces to names. What a great friend and what a beautiful family.

That was a touching video. It was so nice to see you in action. Your kids are wise (just like you) and I got a tear. Thank you for sharing it!

Claire Beynon said...

Thanks for sharing this with us, Maggie. . . so lovely to see you all and to hear your voices. And what a fabulous amount of hugging goes on between you all! Touch is such an important part of love's language.
Thinking of you as you await Ever's arrival. It must be just hours away now! All joy to you and your family - - - Love, Claire
